Number Four: The Square


In light of the language of numerology, number 4 is the most serious, stable-minded vibration of the entire numeral spectrum.  Unlike its predecessor, frilly, light-hearted 3, 4 deals purely with no-nonsense, no-time-for-gaming matters.  With number 4, what you see is what you get.  It is straight forward, extremely honest and sometimes rather stern, and serves as a base or foundation for great architectural structures or to any philosophy, religion or belief.  4’s nature is one of hard work and extreme discipline, hardly ever veering from its course for rest or play, and so indeed could be thought of as a “square”; not only in the geometrical sense, but also as someone with no fun time, no “party spirit”.

The corners of a square which numeral 4 represents could also be thought of as a rectangle; more specifically, the Golden Rectangle:  ancient mathematician (or numerologist) Pythagoras’ finding of that sacred shape being the fundamental root and building blocks to all of creation.  According to this concept, the rectangle is the earthy form or incarnation of the timeless, life-giving spiral; that which contains our galaxy, the motions of planets and stars and the very cells of our bodies which spin on endlessly.  And so what provides order and continuity to the cosmos and to our own personal temples is the basis to every single man-or-nature-made structure or vision here on our planet:  exemplified by 4 naturally proportioned points of balance.  And this natural balance exists in ways so subtle and small that we hardly notice, as well as huge and all-consuming like 4 seasons of the calender year, 4 pivotal geographic directions and the 4 primary elements–earth, air, water and fire.

The 4th Chakra of our astral bodies or energy centers is the heart chakra…ahh the heart chakra, that boundless spinning well of raw emotion, intuition, organic tender reasoning.  4’s color is a rich, healing green; its primary coinciding gemstones are emerald and jade.

4 is a vibration that we all may be encountering at some point in our present day lives.  For it is said that with the up-coming shifting of our planet’s poles and ascension of humanity, life as we have known it will be entering the next dimension–the 4th dimension–abruptly transcending our past-present-future perceptions of time and existence.

    thank you for sharing this with us. I have often heard that 4 was the number of stability, whereas 3 was less stable.
    Love, hugs and have a peaceful weekend, my dear ~

      It’s true: 3 is full of whimsical, youthful creative energy whereas 4 is “older”, wiser and much more cautious, logical and contained. Of course that’s just this one interpreter’s description, but I think the stream essence of the vibrations are universal…Thanks for blessings of peace love & hugs! To you as well…

    great pic… and very interesting! =) My lucky/favorite number is 42…. I inherited 42 from my father. My brothers did too. We see it everywhere… and, it is, after-all, the answer the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything… 😉

  4. Unsungpoet says:

    Thanks for the compliments and for your interest. 42, while on one level being a 4 and a 2, on another dimension is a “subconscious” 6 (4+2)…So I don’t know, maybe that holds something for you and your brothers…6 is a very social, collective consciousness, family oriented vibration, so it doesn’t surprise me that it was handed down to you from your father! Very nice to hear from you…

  5. Interesting and amusing article.
    Keep squaring that circle!

  6. The Universe is made up of maths… 🙂 4 is a very Good number… loved this post… 🙂 keep living from your heart… xxx ~Sue
